Burma’s celebs visit landslide-struck Hakha
28 August 2015 — A troupe of singers, musicians and movie stars yesterday arrived by helicopter in Hakha, Chin State, giving comfort and support to landslide-hit victims.
The group comprising actor Lwin Moe, Chin actress Zung Cer Mawi, better known as Thet Mon Mying, and her husband, Iron Cross members Lay Phyu, A Nge, Myo Gyi, Chit San Maung and Khin Maung Thant visited the devastated areas and victims at camps.
Mai Dim, a Hakha resident, said: “We feel encouraged when they come to Hakha in person. And I also believe that people feel they are not forgotten and left alone in the disaster.”
Together with Aung Ko Win, owner of the Kanbawza company, who facilitated the trip, they provided financial donations and other goods for humanitarian and reconstruction needs.
The group flew back to Kalay, Sagaing Region early this morning after spending a night in the Chin capital owing to bad weather conditions that had made it impossible for them to return yesterday.#
